Ummm, that is a rifle ya doofus!Cross said during an initial court appearance that there was no rifle involved, only a pellet gun, the Daily Bee reported.
I think I've seen that movie... Bugs Bunny, wasn't it?

We used to do that with pellet guns when we were kids. Now of course we send people to prison for it.
An old prospector shuffled into the town of El Indio , Texas, leading an old tired mule. The old man headed straight for the only saloon in town, to clear his parched throat. He walked up to the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail.
As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.
The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, "Hey old man, have you ever danced?"
The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No, I never did dance ... Never really wanted to."
A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, "Well, you old fool, you're gonna dance now," and started shooting at the old man's feet.
The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet.
Everybody was laughing, fit to be tied. When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon.
The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barrel shotgun, and cocked both hammers. The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air.
The crowd stopped laughing immediately. The young gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly.
The silence was almost deafening.
The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin 10 gauge barrels. The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man's hands, as he quietly said, "Son, have you ever kissed a mule's Ass?"
The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No sir ... But... I've always wanted to."
There are a few lessons for us all here:
Never be arrogant.
Don't waste ammunition.
Whiskey makes you think you're smarter than you are.
Always, always make sure you know who has the power.
Don't mess with old folks, they didn't get old by being stupid.
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
I better stay armed. My dancing days are long gone ....never could "moon walk" either. Thank goodness I am not a drinker.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
The Defendant may think it's no big deal "It's only a pellet gun" ,but if the dancee thought it was real,then in the eyes of the law he threatened him with a real gun,same kinda gun that could get him killed if he pulled it on somebody that was armed with the real deal.
Theres a case in Brownsville Tx where a 16 y6ear old had a "gun" in school,he was confronted by 2 LEO's and refused to drop the "gun",one LEO fired a shot that killed him,after it turned out to be an airsoft gun people are claiming they didn't have to shoot him etc. etc. etc. IIRC Parents have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the LEO's, PD,City etc
